The 192nd General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE TERMS OF CERTAIN BONDS TO BE ISSUED BY THE COMMONWEALTH.

SECTION 1.  Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the bonds that the state treasurer may issue pursuant to section 23 of chapter 9 of the acts of 2021 shall be issued for a term not to exceed 20 years. All such bonds shall be payable not later than June 30, 2046, as recommended by the governor in a message to the general court dated May 25, 2021 under section 3 of Article LXII of the Amendments to the Constitution.

SECTION 2.  Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the bonds that the state treasurer may issue pursuant to section 6 of chapter 15 of the acts of 2021 shall be issued for a term not to exceed 30 years.
